As Presbyterians, we believe in the triune God. In other words, God is one person and yet three: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible is the written revelation of who God is. It is important to gather weekly for worship and also regularly to experience the sacraments of communion. Baptism is seen as a visible sign of God’s promise to God’s people.
WHAT IS A PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, ANYWAY?
The word Presbyterian means “led by elders”, and it refers to how we organize our church.
Many churches have a hierarchical structure. Our structure involves both ministers and members of congregations.
A Presbyterian Church is overseen at a local level by its local Session, a group of Elders elected by the congregation who meet regularly to lead and serve the congregation. They in turn send a representative to a larger regional group called a Presbytery, which in turn sends ministers and elders to a national assembly every year.
